Kevin Randleman signs with Strikeforce – for real

Kevin “The Monster” Randleman has signed a contract to fight for the San Jose based professional mixed martial arts promotion, STRIKEFORCE (for real this time). The announcement that Randleman had been added to the STRIKEFORCE roster was made Saturday night, April 11th, at the “Strikeforce: Shamrock vs. Diaz” post-fight press conference in which PRO MMA (promma.info) was in attendance.

STRIKEFORCE CEO, Scott Coker, announced plans to put Randleman in the cage to fight “right away” which most likely means “The Monster” would appear on STRIKEFORCE’S June 6th card in St. Louis, although that is only speculation at this point and no opponents were named.

PRO MMA exclusive interview: Frank Shamrock

PRO MMA (promma.info) was on hand at the Shamrock Martial Arts Academy for Frank Shamrock’s media workout Wednesday in downtown San Jose, California. Shamrock (24-9-1) will face PRIDE FC and UFC veteran Nick Diaz (18-7, 1NC) at Strikeforce’s April 11th event at the HP Pavilion in San Jose.

The MMA legend took some time to sit down with PRO MMA to discuss Diaz and the upcoming bout. Shamrock also discussed the cut to 179, the new location of his gym, Tito Ortiz and the evolution of MMA.

PRO MMA: Frank, how has moving the gym to this new location downtown gone for you?
SHAMROCK: The only hard part was that we moved through Christmas which was hard to get volunteers. A lot of days moving but it’s fantastic, look at it! It is absolutely amazing. The energy in this place, the feel of it…everyone says it looks like the White House when you come in and then you are up in here it looks like a dungeon of sorts. It’s the kind of place I need. Hardcore, rugged, a little dirty and dusty but it’s good.
